UP 3985, which has been "in the shop" for the past five years or so, has been put back together, been given a spot on shine, and is out running the mainline! UP coordinated with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus to have UP 3985 lead the circus train south on the Greeley Sub. UP 3985 leading a 63-car passenger train (okay, some freight mixed in...but still). What a site!

Thanks for the amazing shots. I was trying to make it up the Greeley sub, but the US Air Force said other wise....
